The Vitafoods Europe Executive Advisory Board has issued a call for papers for the annual Vitafoods Europe Conference 2015, taking place in Geneva from 5-7 May 2015. Experts from the world of industry and academia are invited to submit a paper within any area of functional nutrition; from new technologies and scientific research to innovations in processes and products.

Presenting a unique platform for showcasing excellence in nutritional science, innovation, business, education, and professional networking and exchange; successful entries will be given the opportunity to present their findings to the international functional food and beverage community at Vitafoods Europe Conference 2015.

The conference forms part of Vitafoods Europe, the world’s leading ingredients and raw materials event for the nutraceutical and functional food and drink industries. Last year saw close to 14,000 attendees and 750 exhibitors, from over 100 countries, network and forge new partnerships for continued growth and development.

An expanded programme for 2015 will ensure that the very latest research within core topics such as digestive health, heart health, healthy ageing, physical performance and personalised nutrition are thoroughly represented. In addition, exciting innovations and new ingredients within areas such as marine resources, infant nutrition, beauty and botanicals will be included to share best practice and build partnerships.

Bringing together key stakeholders and thought leaders within European regulation, guidelines and business practice, the presentations at this year’s conference will also examine the overall value chain for functional nutrition. In addition, they will focus on the tools required to successfully bring a new product, ingredient or research to market.

Carolina Lindahl, Vitafoods Europe Conference and Content Manager, says: “The conference continues to take an active part in shaping the functional food and beverage industry, bringing together scientific theory and business practice. This year, after extensive consultation with the industry, we have developed the conference programme to look at the full cycle of developing a new ingredient or product, taking it from the clinical lab to retail, and then on to the end consumer. We are looking for the industry’s brightest minds to share their latest thinking, research and innovations.”

The deadline for submissions is Friday 14 November 2014.

To find out more or to discuss other topics, please contact Carolina Lindahl, Conference and Content Manager, on carolina.lindahl@informa,com or visit www.vitafoods.eu.com/cfp.
